Red is the Color of You

As a child, Izumi was always fascinated with the revenant: a mysterious apparition that appears when one is at their lowest with the promise of salvation, only to devour them as consequence. Never did he doubt his existence, and his devotion to the tale would soon see light when encounters the specter in a field, albeit for a moment. Ever since that day, Izumi gained the ability to see ghosts, something that no one else possessed, causing his obsession with finding out the truth of the revenant to dominate his life. Overtime, his connection with the revenant would go beyond mere curiosity, as it grew into something he would never have expected: love.

Please check out my short vers of this!

In terms of this novel, there's a bit of gore along with sexual content so be aware of that, but there's more romance/fluff than that stuff soo
I also marked all of the NSFW chapters~ for the most part they can be entirely skipped if that isn't your thing

Be sure to follow my socials for related (and non related) art! :)
